Why is my HVAC making noise?

It’s normal for your HVAC unit to make some noise as it runs. There are a couple of details that impact its sound level, including age and insulation.

However, hearing weird or loud noises may mean a potential problem with your system. If you won’t fix it, there could be serious (and costly) consequences later on.

Here are several of the AC noises and furnace noises we regularly experience in Kitchener and what they can mean. If you’re noticing any of these sounds, get in touch with a technician as soon as possible.

Systems that make too much sound raises sound pollution. While noise might not necessarily affect energy efficiency, it may affect comfort in your house.

HVAC units made now are quieter than ever before. However, it’s wise to check sound levels for your new air conditioner or heat pump, particularly if it’s installed near your bedroom or living room.
